Rainbow Time Review

6 November 2016 10:11 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In Rainbow Time, writer/director Linas Phillips tackles more than just romantic unrest. Throughout his relationship dramedy, characters wallow in post-divorce uncertainty, but also tussle with the bonds of family and mental disability. An idealistic reality of perfection floats loftily out of reach in Phillips’ world, as characters valiantly strive for their “best” – a situational imprisonment that shuns individuality.

Or, Rainbow Time is about two brothers coming to terms with their more one-sided connection, where Todd (Timm Sharp) stops brushing his brother Shonzi (Linas Phillips) off as his “slower” brother. There is love between the two, buried under Todd’s more pertinent desire to keep girlfriend Lindsay (Melanie Lynskey) happy. But where Todd plays bad cop to Shonzi’s short-sighted take on life, Lindsay sees minunderstanding. She tries to transform his obsession with making home movies into a learning experience about treating women with respect, not as sexual objects. Shonzi »

‘Rainbow Time’ Starring Melanie Lynskey Is A Complex Examination of Brotherly Love, Boundaries & Relationships [Review]

4 November 2016 2:13 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While the film industry still has quite a distance to go in the production of films that do not feature Caucasian, male, straight, developmentally typical protagonists, there has been incremental progress over the past thirty years. However, more often people who would have been relegated to one-bit stock characters or stereotypes are now multifaceted subjects and protagonists in their own films, creating a larger diaspora of representation in film. Linas Phillips’ sophomore feature “Rainbow Time,” centers around an immature, developmentally delayed man and leaves me cautiously optimistic that the industry has at the very least improved depictions of developmentally challenged individuals since the days of “I Am Sam” and “Rain Man.”

Life After ‘Heavenly Creatures’: How Melanie Lynskey Keeps Finding Original Roles

4 November 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Surveying Melanie Lynskey’s diverse body of work, from her impressive debut in Peter Jackson’s “Heavenly Creatures” 20 years ago to the Duplass Brothers’ “Togetherness,” one thing is clear: Lynskey takes her project choices as seriously as she does her performances.

Over the last few years, Lynskey has appeared in a robust offering of indie films: Joe Swanberg’s “Happy Christmas,” Todd Louiso’s “Hello I Must Be Going,” and her friend Clea Duvall’s directorial debut, “The Intervention,” for which she received a special jury award from the Sundance Film Festival. She continues her winning streak with Linus Phillips’ “Rainbow Time,” an offbeat comedy that explores sensitive territory without devolving into cliche.

The film stars Phillips as Shonzi, a developmentally delayed jokester with a fondness for women, filmmaking, and his brother Todd (Timm Sharp). Lynskey plays Lyndsay, Todd’s idealistic girlfriend, who coddles Shonzi during trying moments when Todd would rather punch him. »

Review: ‘Rainbow Time’ Is Like a Duplass Brothers Remake of ‘Freddy Got Fingered’

4 November 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Duplass enerothers have become so synonymous with a certain strain of warmed over indie dramedy that it’s easy to overlook just how twisted they can be, and often are. Directorial efforts like “Baghead” and “Cyrus” have been sliced through with genuinely disturbing behavior, and many of the movies they’ve produced or presented (e.g. “Tangerine” or “The Overnight”) have pushed boundaries of one kind or another, albeit it with such a gentle touch that these transgressions seem as natural as breathing. It’s a helpful way of reframing the modesty of their work and the speed at which they churn it out — it’s not that the Duplai prioritize quantity over quality, but rather that their kooky ideas (and those of the filmmakers they’re eager to support) are too dangerously delicate to support anything bigger than a micro-budget project that’s shot in nine days and destined for VOD. »

Beauty vs Beast: The Princesses of Borovnia

31 October 2016 11:42 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here -- with most holidays I think it would suck to share a birthday - who wants their birthday on Thanksgiving? Or even worse, Christmas? Everyone else getting presents on your day? What a nightmare. But Halloween is the exception - I would love my birthday to be on Halloween. Costume parties every year! A cake shaped like Frankenstein's head! Or even better - a cake shaped like the Bride of Frankenstein's head! (Because more cake.) 

And you wanna know who I bet has the best Halloween Birthday Parties? Peter Jackson, that's who. I bet he dresses up like the Std-riddled rabbit from Meet the Feebles or like the Mouth of Sauron every year. Damn you, Peter Jackson

Oh well - we'll go ahead and wish him a happy day today with this week's edition of "Beauty vs Beast" anyway, and since we're going to be »

25 October 2016 6:08 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Will Starz renew the TV show for a third season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.Set in Los Angeles, Blunt Talk revolves around Falklands War veteran and broadcaster Walter Blunt (Patrick Stewart).

Season two guests include Fred Armisen, Jason Schwartzman, Moby, Fred Melamed, Golden Brooks, Erik Griffin, Brett Gelman, Ed Begley, Brent Spiner, Paul Scheer, Trace Lysette, Leslie Ann Warren, Stacey Keach, Rob Huebel, Angela Kinsey, Charles »

First Trailer for Indie Comedy 'Rainbow Time' Directed by Linas Phillips

20 October 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'm jealous of what you have." The Orchard has debuted a trailer for an odd indie comedy titled Rainbow Time, written, directed by and starring Linas Phillips. The film is about a mentally challenged man named Shonzi, played by Linas Phillips, who moves in with his brother Todd, played by Timm Sharp. He now lives with his girlfriend Lindsay, played by the always wonderful Melanie Lynskey, and things become awkward when Shonzi wants to get more involved in their relationship, threatening to reveal secrets about Todd's past. As weird as this sounds, the trailer actually promises a charming, quirky, enjoyably unique film. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Linas Phillips' Rainbow Time, direct from YouTube: A developmentally delayed 40 year old man named Shonzi is sent to live with his brother Todd. But when Shonzi develops a crush on Todd's new girlfriend Lindsay, he threatens to reveal past secrets »

With “Blunt Talk” just a few months away from debuting its sophomore season, Starz has released a new trailer signaling the return of its Patrick Stewart–led comedy.

‘Rainbow Time’ Cast, Filmmaker Discuss Emotional Lives of Special Needs Families (Video)

23 March 2016 2:06 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

For several years, Linas Phillips worked as a babysitter for kids with special needs. He says experience with those kids is what inspired him to make a film about the day-to-day challenges of having someone developmentally delayed in your family. The result is “Rainbow Time,” a dramedy written, directed by and starring Phillips. The film premiered at SXSW in Austin earlier this month. Phillips plays Shonzi, a developmentally delayed 40-year-old sent to live with his brother Todd (Timm Sharp).
